President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday announced that official meetings involving Deputy President William Ruto should be held at Harambee House.

A source who spoke to Standard newspaper revealed that the issue had allegedly irked the president to the point that he had to issue the comment.

"The President was categorical that the numerous meetings held in Karen should be held at Harambee.

"He said that even when he had to host people from his backyard, he would do so at Harambee House," the source disclosed.

The Riot Act

President Kenyatta also read the Riot Act to those in the meeting as he scolded Jubilee party officials over failing to rein in rogue members.

According to those who were present at the meeting, the President ordered all members of the party to cease politicking and instead focus on the Big Four agenda and the Building Bridges Initiative.

He also asked the ruling party's disciplinary committee to prepare to take stern action against any politicians who will go against the agreed terms.

"He (the President) said those opposed to his agenda would be asked to give way," the source further conveyed.

Those who attended the meeting at State House, Mombasa on Wednesday included: Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen, his deputy Fatuma Dullo, Majority Whip Susan Kihika and her deputy Irungu Kang’ata.

Also in attendance from the National Assembly were Majority Leader Aden Duale, his deputy Jimmy Agwenyi, Majority Whip Ben Washiali and his deputy Cecily Mbarire.

The president and his deputy later caused a stir in the Mombasa CBD where they had lunch together.
